As promised, Christopher Rufo is back with more documents and slides from yet another school district’s training for staff and administrators. We’ve given up on critical race theory for a bit and are looking into queer theory and how schools are shaping their curriculums around it. The documents for the San Diego Unified School District are very similar to others that Rufo has posted; for example, white European colonizers created a false “gender binary” and imposed it upon the two-spirited indigenous peoples.
The gender binary is “a social construct that situates ‘male’ and ‘female’ as synonymous with ‘man’ and ‘woman’ and dictates how people assigned to these categories should act. This limited system excludes and oppresses trans, nonbinary, intersex, and gender-nonconforming people.”
If you’re straight, you probably don’t even realize that you have “heterosexual and cisgender privilege.”
What do LGBTQ students want teachers to know? “I use they/them pronouns and identify as genderfluid. I’m passionate about gender eradication and POC movements.” Did you catch that? Gender eradication?
